Luxology Releases imageSynth Plug-in

imageSynth, by Luxology, is advanced technology that works within Adobe Photoshop for creating seamless textures and for creating high resolution images from low resolution sources using advanced image synthesis algorithms. Hence the name!

Developed in conjunction with the smart people at Allegorithmic, the imageSynth plug-in is a powerful ally to Adobe Photoshop for anyone wanting to create seamless tiling textures. The plug-in is simple to use and rewards experimentation. You can use imageSynth from Luxology to create an unlimited number of creative new images based upon simple seed images that you choose from your collection. The resulting images are unique, and will tile seamlessly, making them ideal for use as backgrounds, brushes or texture maps. You can also take a low resolution image source and use it to generate a high resolution image that is based upon. This is a very powerful tool providing a myriad of creative solutions.
